It's been a while we wanted to go to Burger and Lobster, having heard about this place from our friend Tessa. So, we decided to go on a Saturday, at noon, the time they open, thinking that it was a small place that would be crowded quickly. Well, we were wrong: not only it was not that crowded, but I was surprised to discover such huge place (with red predominant to symbolize the color of the lobster) that has also a small room downstairs. Nice decor with the traps to capture lobsters and of course the fish tanks at the entrance where you can see some beautiful lobsters.
Food wise, they propose burgers, lobsters and lobster rolls. So, if you are vegetarian, unless you like fries and a bit of salad, this is not for you as their sign indicates that they do not have any veggie burger.
Jodi went for their London burger, a 6oz burger with bacon and cheese, lettuce and tomato that Jodi ditched and pickles, topped with their house sauce.
I ordered their combo composed of a 6oz burger (same size as Jodi) and a 1lb lobster, that came with clarified butter, salad and fries. I admit that I did not even touch the salad and barely the fries that anyway were just ok and concentrated on the delicious lobster that was perfectly cooked and the juicy burger that was pretty good. I thought that for $33 it was a good deal. Also, I added cheese and bacon to the burger without any additional charge.
Burger sand lobster is a great place if you'd like a decadent meal and I thought that price wise is was not outrageous. Definitely a place to consider and I for sure have to go back to try their burger topped with lobster called "the beast"!
Enjoy (I did)!
